It’s been a whirlwind 48 hours of glitter, disco balls, lasers, too many bags of Cheetos FLAMIN‘ HOT®, but D-Day is finally here! Forget New Year’s, the biggest dance party of the year is VH1 DIVAS tonight! And based on what we saw on day one of rehearsals, it’s going to make everyone crap fireworks when the night is over. Don’t believe me? Just check out the rehearsal footage, photos and interviews from one of the most anticipated acts of the night, the Whitney Houston tribute.
Even with everyone dressed down and going at half speed through their marks, Jordin Sparks, Ledisi and Melanie Fiona were on fire. They clearly work well as a team. Maybe an official collaboration is in their future?
And the trio sounded bananas belting over a special remix of Whitney’s classics you’ll only hear on VH1 DIVAS tomorrow night. If you heard them casually harmonizing like I did as they practiced “How Will I Know” you’d know I’m not exaggerating.
The camaraderie on set was palpable, too. On top of loving Whitney, the three women clearly respect and admire each other. Ledisi stopped to give Jordin a big hug when she arrived at the Shrine Auditorium and asked her to, “Say hi to your mom for me!”
Jordin made sure to tweet out Ledisi’s shout-out to her mom in between run-throughs.
I’m about to puke glitter this stuff is so cute! Whitney would be proud. See more behind-the-scenes photos below. Don’t forget to watch the full Whitney Houston tribute along with the rest of the VH1 DIVAS lineup tonight 9/8C.
